Technical Details

The detection Trojan:JS/Redirector identifies a large grouping of programs or scripts that redirect a visitor from one website to another, unsolicited website.

These redirect scripts are typically hosted on malicious or compromised websites.

The unsolicited website the user is redirected to may have any or all of the following characteristics:

  • Pornographic
  • Hosts additional malware to be downloaded onto the visitor's computer
